Fujairah is one of the most beautiful and interesting of the seven Emirates that make up the UAE and boasts the best scenery in the country. It is a land of long sandy beaches washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and deep, fertile valleys cutting through the towering Hajar Mountains – a natural beauty spot and a holiday destination without parallel. This book provides a colourful portrayal of a prosperous emirate, its history and heritage, its rapidly growing economy and, above all, the friendliness of its people for which it is justly renowned.
